Gynae Doc please answer!
I'm 6weeks pregnant. We are going to a game farm this weekend & there are tics every where! Is there something that I can spray on/lotion my body or anything to prevent to be bitten by a tick???? I think that tick fever could be disasterous for my unborn baby???

I don't know about ways of preventing tick bite fever. CyberDoc may be able to help.
